The Wapakoneta Redskins got big days from Anthony Kennard and Zach Miller and rolled past the previously unbeaten Versailles Tigers on Saturday to wrap up a perfect 15-0 regular season and win the West Ohio High School Bowling Conference title.
Kennard, a senior, rolled individual games of 289 and 259. Miller, a junior, turned in scores of 267 and 257.
Together, they posted the top four individual rounds of the day among the 16 schools competing at 20th Century Lanes in Lima.
But Anna proved to be just too much as the Rockets cruised to a 73-61 win in a Shelby County League varsity boys basketball game Friday at Botkins High School.
The Trojans briefly took a 20-18 lead early in the second quarter when Tyler Egbert scored from the paint on back-to back trips down the floor and then connected on the second of a pair of free throws.
VAN WERT — The Van Wert Cougars used their clear size advantage to cruise to a 54-39 win over the Wapakoneta Redskins in a Western Buckeye League varsity girls basketball game Thursday at Van Wert High School.
The game turned in the second quarter when the Cougars outscored Wapak 16-3 to take a 26-11 lead into the lockerroom.
Van Wert held the Redskins without a field goal for a span of 13:36, starting late in the first quarter and extending into the first five minutes of the third.
COLDWATER â€” The Wapakoneta Redskins tried to claw their way out of the hole.
Unfortunately, the hole was just a little too deep â€” two points too deep, in fact.
Wapak rallied with 21 fourth-quarter points but came up just short of a comeback win, falling to the Coldwater Cavaliers 52-50 in a non-league varsity girls basketball game Tuesday night at Coldwater High School.
The loss dropped the Redskins to 10-7 on the season.
In a game of momentum swings, the final Cavsâ€™ swing was too much to overcome.
Thatâ€™s all that stands between the Wapakoneta Redskins varsity boys bowling team and an undefeated season.
Well, that and the equally undefeated Versailles Tigers.
Wapak and Versailles head into the final match of the West Ohio High School Bowling Conference season with identical 14-0 records. The Redskins are listed in first place based on total pins this season.
But that wonâ€™t matter when the two teams square off at 1 p.m. Saturday at 20th Century Lanes in Lima.
